What an incredible museum. This newly built and reconstructed museum was finished in 2002. There's a large new wing that's connected to several old townhouses that you can also tour. I loved it. There's tons to see here. Many of the reviews here are confusing this museum with a smaller museum that is under renovation. Ignore those reviews.. this is... More

For starters two of the most recent reviews below on exhibits being closed are for the WRONG MUSEUM. The city history museum is closed until May 2017 (save for a temporary exhibition of football). The national museum on the other hand is very open with an incredible collection of artifacts from prehistory to the Middle Ages (with a particular emphasis... More

The museum is really great but one remark - small part of it includes English translation. There is no entrance fee so that is ok. But, after speaking with the girls at the entrance on English, we were offered to visit two exhibitions for a fee, which we accepted, but we weren't informed there was no English translation, so we...

Closed for renovation works. Unless you want to see the single exhibit of the history of football. Whose history, world or Luxembourg ? I’m not sure as we didn’t enter and I’m not aware of any football significance with Luxembourg.

I saw a very poor exhibition of Football. It was terrible. I am not a technophobe but it was difficult to follow. It was super glitzy and impressive but not at all interesting especially as I know nothing of football nor interested in it. The museum was a bit of a mess.

This museum has a bit of everything, from prehistoric cave dwellers to ipods. The place is quite spread out and haphazard so it's easy to get lost. That's part odd the fun though!

Great museum to wonder round. There's floors of interesting artefacts and artwork. English guides available in each room either on boards on in book forms. Great rainy day activity.

Spending an afternoon in Luxembourg City I decided to visit one museum and because of the Tripadvisor ratings I chose this one. As I was at the end of my visit I only had half an hour to visit so I couldn't see everything - actually I could only see a fragment but next time I'll revisit when I'll make... More

A little bit of everything.. Archeology, architecture (mosaics), paintings.. Special exhibitions must be paid. Easy to visit.
